The next issue of V magazine hits newsstands on Monday, and we could not be more thrilled to bring you a first look at its very special, never-before-seen Lady Gaga covers. Mario Testino shot Gaga wearing Marc Jacobs, styled by Nicola Formichetti. Gaga’s covers comes in two versions: one in which she wears electrostatic blue Marc Jacobs glasses and another in which she wears a pink pair of shades. “When the Marc Jacobs pink hooded coat and glasses came down the runway, I knew there was only one person I wanted to see in it: Lady Gaga,” editor-in-chief Stephen Gan explains. “Growing up as a kid obsessed with new wave, I would cut up paper sunglasses and put them onto celebs’ faces on magazine covers. These plastic peel-on and peel-off glasses come in pink and blue and are actually based on the Marc Jacobs ones that came down the runway!” So got that, kids? You can actually peel off Gaga’s sunglasses and stick them on your own face. Former MTV veejay John Norris interviewed Gaga for the story inside the issue. She also posed for an editorial, which you can see a preview of right now!
Now that is something we weren’t expecting. But also absolutely genius. Someone’s been doing her sit-ups! And not getting bikini waxes, that’s for sure. So progressive, that Gaga. God bless V.
